The Research Technology Catalogue provide researchers with information on technology systems that can assist in their research.
Clinical Trials SoftwareClinical Trials Software is used to capture and manage clinical trial data. It allows users to build their own studies, design electronic Case Report Form's (eCRFs) and conduct a full range of clinical data capture and clinical data management functions.
Collaborative AuthoringCollaborative Authoring tools allow research teams to author documents together.
They range from Wikis which are web - focused to tools like Google docs and Microsoft Office Live which is focused on desktop publishing.
Collaborative Research EnvironmentA Collaborative Research Environment is a online application that combines and integrates several collaboration tools such as wikis, file hosting, discussion forums, chat, calendar and blogs etc.
Content Management Systems (CMS)Content Management Systems (CMS) are used to create websites and publish documents, without the user having to know the detailed ins' and outs' of web development.
Data StorageThese Data Storage services provide a capacity and means for storing raw data. Online data storage options can be particularly useful in situations where a distributed team of researchers are working on the same data.
File SharingThere are three modes of file sharing, first is for a researcher to share their own files between multiple computers (e.g. home and office), the second is for on-going shared access to a set of files for multiple researchers and the third is for one-off file transfers (often very large) from one researcher to another.
High Performance ComputingHigh Performance Computing is used to solve real world problems of significant scale or detail, across a diverse range of disciplines including; physics, biology, chemistry, geo-science, climate science, engineering and many others.
Issue TrackingIssue tracking software is used to keep track of problems and tasks, including: due dates, who is responsible, outcomes and so on.
Research Administrative SystemsMany Research Administrative Systems exist to assist researchers with varying aspects of their research workflow.
Survey ToolsConducting surveys is an important part of many research projects and where respondents are able to complete a survey electronically, there are many software tools that are able to assist.
UtilitiesThis category contains a variety of utilities that do not fit into any of the other categories.
Version Control SoftwareVersion Control Software allows users to keep a repository of documents and record the history of their changes over time.
